E=mc² | Tombeaux | 'Still Life' at the Penguin Café

There are no performances listed for Penguin Café

Three of Director David Bintley's most celebrated works.

Firstly, David Bintley’s homage to classical ballet draws you into a passionate and melancolic landscape. Tombeaux is Bintley’s lament on the death of his mentor, the great Frederick Ashton.

The award-winning E=mc² is an intriguing and exhilarating experience. Danced to a specially commissioned score by Australian composer Matthew Hindson, it explores Einstein’s celebrated ‘Special Theory of Relativity’ in music and dance of breathtaking energy and speed.

Meet a colourful host of endangered animals seeking shelter from the storm in ‘Still Life’ at the Penguin Café.Watch as humans and animals mingle, enjoying drinks and polite conversation in the Penguin Café. Be introduced to a morris-dancing flea, a ballroom-dancing ram, a woolly monkey and many more in a ballet that takes a witty and poignant look at man’s effect on the world.
